Cool Get my first Boxster tomorrow.......

...and I can't tell y'all how excited I am...............!!

Good afternoon everyone, my name is Si and I hale from Staffordshire in the midlands of the UK.

I pick my 1st boxster up tomorrow at 11am after deciding to part-ex my MR2 roadster. She's a black 2003 facelift 2.7 boxster with full history, brand new MoT with no advisories, 6 months comprehensive warranty and full road tax. 70k on clock and quite superb indeed. Have a 125 mile journey to get to the dealer but an even better 125 mile trip to get back. She's a looker with full savannah leather, GT3 alloys and S calipres.....!!

Really looking forward to being a part of this very useful, informative and very much international forum and getting to know and enjoy my new toy.

Catch up with you all soon and will post some pics as soon as I can.

Here's looking forward to a weekend of driving, claying and waxing.

Si

Welcome to the club, and be sure to enjoy driving her as thats what will keep you most enthralled, rather than making her a garage queen.

Besides, you have some very picturesque scenery to enjoy and be sure to snap a few for the Forum as well.

Cool. You're not too far from me (relatively speaking as this is a predominantly US forum)!
Most awesome car I have ever owned. Don't think I could own a different brand

Welcome to the forum Si. Being an ex Brit if I lived in the UK I would own a Boxster or a Miata but I don't. Anyways I own a 2001 Box base and am really happy with it. With a 2003 you get a glass back window! |Look forward to the pics...
Cheers, G.

Congratulations, Si, and welcome aboard!

I'm also UK based (Croydon, south London) and bought my first Boxster (a 2002 2.7 tiptronic with full leather and pcm1) on Tuesday last week after three days and nine hundred miles of travelling across the UK to look at two other examples. Unfortunately some twat ran into the back of it last Sunday, but only the bumper has been damaged and I've already got another in the right colour which I'll be swapping this weekend. Hope you have more luck with yours.

Other than that, the car is superb. A bit of a contrast to my previous car, an '88 Citroen 2cv6...

Enjoy the ride home. Mine should have been a 100 mile journey home from Milton Keynes, but as I was enjoying it so much I deliberately took the longer way around the western half of the M25
